MIT Laptop Gets a New Name... and a Higher Price Tag

Saturday, August 26, 2006

MIT's OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) Project has announced the much anticipated name for its laptop: the Children's Machine 1 (CM1). The system's hardware specs are also final. The laptop sports a 400mhz AMD Geode processor (previously 360mhz), 128MB of DRAM, built-in wireless support, and 512MB of flash memory for internal storage. There are some new features too, such as an SD card slot, microphone and speaker jacks (VoIP?), and a digital camera capable of capturing video and still images. But, all this comes at a slightly higher price tag, the once $100 laptop is now the $140 laptop. Still for $140, this laptop is amazing, and I can't wait to see what impact it will have on 3rd world regions and countries. Read more @ ars technica.
